Dear Tuukka,

Thank you for the clear examples.

If I'd seen this email before writing my previous one, it would have been less 

That said, could you explain how Example 6 is permitted under the licensing 
terms, given the section I quoted in the other email which appears to prohibit 
this without allowance for separate projects?

Thanks again,
 - Francis H
